The Fairby Avantika Chaurasia
In the lets Start Art sessions this month, we asked students to read a chapter named "The Fair" from their English book and relate it to the Fair they visited.
Such topics help children express the ideas that they can not put into words. Through our let's start art program we aim to encourage such expression.
Here are a few stories that will surely bring back your childhood memories of visiting a fair.
What's in the Basketby Gaurav Tiwari
Our recent sessions were conducted on the topic "What's in the basket ?" This topic is from a book that is part of the course curriculum of the 4th standard. When children draw on a topic that is part of their surroundings, they are more confident in participation. It allows them to connect, observe and imagine with ease.
The Fair and Cleanlinessby Karishma Srivastava
Before children learn to read and write, they learn to draw. Those tiny little scribbles on the walls, slate, or paper, all of these move children towards learning the skill of writing. Drawing, in this sense, is a significant part of the process of acquiring literacy. Let's Start Art sessions at government primary schools are the space for children, where they have the opportunity to express emotionally significant experiences while connecting and relating to the content that they are learning at school.
